Declutter During A Long Weekend

The Perfect Time To Declutter

A long weekend makes it the perfect time to declutter the home and garage. Clutter has its way of creeping back into the house after a successful spring cleaning, which has a lot to do with booking a busy summer filled with camping trips, family reunions and vacations.

Take It One Room At A Time: If your home took a beating this summer in terms of “clutter-gathering,” try to breakdown the clean up into smaller chunks easier to manage. For example, focus on one room at a time rather than viewing the entire house clean up as a whole. If it’s a single room that’s in need of some serious decluttering, break the room into sections to make it a more manageable project.

Organize The Garage: It’s a good time to start putting away all the “summer stuff” taking up space in the garage, such as summer kid’s toys. It’s the perfect time to declutter for the colder weather in not-so-distant future – yes, for many of us that means the “white stuff” too. If you live in a colder climate, it’s not a bad idea to test out your winter equipment, such as the snow blower, to make sure it’s working properly. It’s much easier to fix a broken down snow blower when it’s still warm outside – waiting until the first snowfall and finding out it won’t start is definitely not a fun ordeal.

Getting Rid Of Stuff: Drop off household goods and clothing to the nearest charitable organization. September is also one of your last opportunities – at least in colder climates – to host a garage or yard sale.

Yard Maintenance: Don’t forget about the lawn. Fall is a great time to aerate and/or over-seed the lawn. Clean-up lawn clutter like leaves, sticks and other debris littering the lawn. It will help give your home fresh, new curb appeal. Lastly, make sure to save a little time to relax. After all, it is a time dedicated to giving hardworking Canadians like you a little bit of a break for all your hard work throughout the year.
